[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Seward as Ch. 10, Art. 3, of the 1976 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Amended 9-19-1978 by Ord. No. 1141; 9-4-1984 by Ord. No. 27-84]
Games of bingo shall be conducted within the municipality in accordance with all laws of the municipality and the State of Nebraska if the game of bingo is played for or involves profit or gain. Any association duly licensed by the State of Nebraska to conduct the game of bingo shall obtain a written permit from the governing body before commencing operation of said game. Application shall be made to the Municipal Clerk for such permit. Said application form shall contain such information and documents or copies thereof as the governing body deems necessary to determine whether to grant or reject the application. Upon the determination that granting the application would be proper, the governing body shall immediately direct the Municipal Clerk to issue the license to the applicant upon the payment of a permit fee in an amount set from time to time by the City Council. Said license shall be subject to revocation at any time for good cause. Any person or persons so licensed shall be subject to any other fees, rules, and regulations which the governing body may designate. All permits so issued will automatically expire on September 30 following their issuance or renewal. The fee for each renewal, unless otherwise prescribed, shall be set from time to time by the City Council. Said fee shall be credited to the General Fund. The permit shall be on display at any place where a game of bingo is conducted.
All applicable state statutes as they now exist or may hereafter be amended shall be, and will constitute, a part of this article as if repeated verbatim herein, and violation of any state statute will be a distinct and separate offense against the municipality as well as against the state. Violators thereof shall be separately prosecuted by the municipality for each of such offenses, and if convicted shall be deemed to be guilty of a misdemeanor. (Neb. RS 9-201 through 9-266)
